HMMM!, sounds like it, but it's not a problem if we can get high quality
alternatives.

I think the license would be the same. We need someone to sponsor this for
us
if should be able to provide the voices.

Wizzard Software gave us a quote of 2800 USD the first year and then
1500/year. And even then they say we may "stream" the sounds to our users as
the users aren't allowed to redistribute the voices either...

I find it insanely expensive and the license extremely limiting. I firmly
believe that the AT&T road has been completely closed for us.
